I am interested in what your colleagues may find under the microscope.

As you will see from the “Amanitaceae” website, the species has been reported from Sardinia; however, I have never personally seen any singeri from anywhere in Italy. My loss.

Very best,

I think that you are probably correct with your ID. If you blow the images up to the maximum that MO offers, it is easy to see that from each wart parallel hyphae stretch toward the center of the cap. This is because the chains of sausage like cells and the hyphae that comprise the volva are intimately connected to the flesh of the cap without a well-formed pileipellis intervening. It is a character shared by all the species of Amanita subsect. Vittadiniae.

Do you have enough material of this collection to send some to me in the U.S.?

If so, I’ll provide my address.

It’s nice to see this species on mushroomobserver.

Very best,
